You can bet all those of the toilet seat persuasion and particularly Coach Horton are hoping the weather cooperates. Their only shot at post season is a decent performance.

Horton: The Rich Man’s Mike Riley?
As someone said, it would be nice if uncle phil keeps him around. He’s beatable (despite recent years) and certainly not a threat in the PAC overall. Similar to MR, he comes across as likeable, and inept.
Horton says, “the Beavs are on a mission” in a piece in the GT (link below). Didya know he too, was snubbed? Happened back in ’91 and that team, CalFull, has gone to the post season 25 consecutive times since the snub.

Keys to the series are pretty straightforward; Beavs pitchers need to avoid HBP, WP, and minimize BB. Hitters need to be aggressive vs the good starting arms of the little sisters.

FEHMEL: Important story here; who takes his place and, as significant, what is his role going forward?

Two wins clinches the PAC Crown AND gets #1000 for Casey, warts and all, lol.

    First.
    Never heard the MR comparison but it fits well. Hearing Horton talk, he sounds like a guy that is happy with middling seasons. He understands no one REALLY expects the ducks to ever win the CWS

    EDIT: Last minute change, twitter lies, Adley batting 5th, still a big opportunity to face some fine arms.

    Game one notes – good win.

    – Heimlich battled his command but ducks couldn’t take advantage.
    – Ducks have issues with fundamentals. It’s costing them games.
    – hitting still hot. Nice to see some homers.
    – Eisert is sneaky fast. His short arm motion is pretty deceiving.

    I think Mulholland gets the start tomorrow. For whatever reason, the ducks don’t hit lefties well. Casey hasn’t put in a righty against them in both games.

      I heard/read somewhere – that Eisert didn’t get a lot of recruiting attention because his pre-OSU team wasn’t very good. I realize that Casey and OSU have top recruiting classes but they do a fine job imo of finding overlooked talent. Riley got credit for that but, except in rare instances, I didn’t see it. Too, whatever it was I heard/read about Eisert mentioned that he hides the ball exceptionally well.

    Mike Parker was especially unimpressed with the crowd size. I agree after seeing highlights and crowd shots as Beavers are rounding the bases.

    We know Peterson is pitching tonight. Hitters have to be disciplined against this guy.

          If you buy it now, you’re either corrupt or beyond the sucker label I thought before. You have to be beyond stupid to believe this asshat is goig to do anything. And I’m not talking like Obama signing a couple orders to direct his departments to lessen dumb oversight, as most of his orders were.

            If you ever thought Bill Clinton was a bad person because of his womanizing, then you must think 4D5 is a monster. But I think Clinton is a bad person because he never took responsibility for his womanizing, blaming the women themselves for telling untruths and/or whatever. The current coward in office does all these same things with many more women, even going so far as threatening to slap them with another of his thousands of frivolous lawsuits just to bury them financially.

    That was said. You took it to mean Dumbshit Donald, the dingbat dookie. And that’s fair. He is all of these things and worse. A moron could see who he is in half a glance… if they were too lazy to do any research on his history… or forgot who he’s been in public for the last 50 years.

    Corrupt, reactionary and lacking leadership are possibly the nicest things I could say about Dipshit Donald, the dilapidated dildo. And it’s not like I would try to be mean. I would just start listing adjectives that correctly describe his stupidity and corruption.

    Oh… if you think the “leebrul media” is out to get him, you go find me one news outlet that discusses how he has been laundering money for the Russian mafia for years.

        Heck, one would think people would have talked about this birth certificate issue more during the past 8 years or something.

        Rather than wart counting I rather question an FBI director that both sides hated and wanted fired because he might have been honest or could have been another Oliver North. Any rate it might be best to keep things civil on the other hand there is nothing Civil about War

          I have never had any questions about it. I know where Honolulu is. It’s nowhere near Nairobi, which was not in Kenya in 1960, as the fake birth certificate Dumbshit Donald tried to sell all the stupids said it did. If your POTUS’ mental capacity is not concerning to you, then why bother asking the questions POTUS asks?

          Why would corporate America want Clinton elected? She’s a corporatist in the sense that she takes fro us and gives to business incrementally. Dingbat Donald is so stupid that he would just take from us and give it to corporations for the helluvit.

          Heck, one would think people would have talked about this birth certificate issue more during the past 8 years or something.

          I can give you the name of one really really really reeeaaaaalllly really stupid person who did talk about it a lot.

          Comey is not a gun runner, a drug trafficker, a liar, a traitor or a convicted felon. I don’t see any comparison to Oliver North. Note also that he is a large man. There really isn’t any mystery why a coward like Draft Dodging Donald fired the dude without even telling him… while he was on the road. And then he talks smack about the dude he just fired.

          That one surprised even me. I didn’t realize Old Bone Spur was immune from the eeoc.

            Oh, I did not ask why would corporate America want Clinton elected; because in the end everyone pays for power. I want to how come the 4th estate is so bad now? That hold such little sway compared to 20 or even 10 years ago . Sure it had a strong message if you don’t vote blue you are a racist sex bigot and you have bad hair…you know the name Deplorables.

Clinton came with all the weird language baggage and shit. But she’s still a corporatist. So the 4th estate wasn’t going to lose either way. They had no reason to try, so they didn’t.

            Bernie, on the other hand, would have put a wrench in the whole neocon lie. He’s not a socialist, no matter how ignorant you want to play it. In fact, when we talk about Medicare for all, that is the most conservative ideal for health care existing.

        I agree, I don’t really see the comparison. Horton has actually won important games at the college level. Riley continues not to do that. I guess if the implication is that Horton is wearing out his welcome in Eugene and Riley did the same in Corvallis, I get it, but their actual coaching achievements are miles apart.

            Bill, to be a star before 25 is the norm now not the exception. So “Conforto is only 24” doesn’t cut it. He has a great swing, and given the modern conditioning, technology (e.g. jugs machines since little league, great equipment, etc), etc etc the old paradigm that 24 is young simply isn’t true. Julio Urias was in the majors at 19 last year and had a 3.3 ERA. Jose Fernandez was similar. Trout. Cabrera. All stars well before 25. In the modern game 25-29 is considered prime. It’s kind of laughable that people consider 24 young in baseball terms. 18-21 is young. Beyond that you’re expected to perform at least somewhat near your talent level. A great example of this is Byron Buxton. When he came up, the argument for him stinking was “he’s only 20” — now 3 years later and he still stinks, and talks are now about cutting him loose because he’s a bust. Nobody is saying “he’s only 23” except the extreme optimists or dudes who are still stuck in ’62.

            If a player has any chance to be considered one of the “Greats” or make the Hall of Fame, they will have to be producing before 25, sure.

            Maybe it just all depends on what you consider a star player.

            Is Bryce Harper a star player? Maybe. Checking out baseball references similarity scores at the same age are fun to look at. Harper’s top 10 includes 3 hall of famers but the top matches were Andruw Jones and Justin Upton.

            Whereas Mike Trout’s top 10 similar player matches has 9 hall of famers.

    Obviously a great weekend with a sweep of the Ducks. Knocks them out any kind of shot at the tournament. Thank goodness there is no PAC12 tournament. Conference tournaments are worthless.

    – I think Fehmel gets the Tuesday start and then the Thursday start against Abline Christian. Good way to work his way back. He will be needed in the postseason.
    – Didn’t agree with Drew getting the start on Fri. He’s still working his way back and that’s bit too much pressure going up against Peterson.
    – You can see in Jake T that he his super confident in his stuff.

    8 games left in the year. No makeups are expected since they would mean nothing.

    Vs Portland – should see more of the backups in that game. Madrigal and Rutschman should get a break. Need to get the backups some playing time because they need to be ready for the postseason too.

    vs WSU – should be a full go for everyone. Drew will get stretched out a little more. Maybe up to 75 pitch count. Finish the conference season on a high note.

    vs Abilene Christian – just get out of there with no injuries. Pitchers on strict pitch counts. Starters should be out by 90 pitches. Bullpen should be no more than 30-35. Try to get everyone at least an inning or two. No time to be greedy, doesn’t matter what your reg season record is if you don’t make it to Omaha.

      Knock on wood, but when all is said and done, the Beavs should surpass their single season win record (52 in 2013) in this historical season. No chance for the all time NCAA record which was back in the 80’s with 72 by Wichita St. As I understand, teams played a crazy amount of games back then also.

      There’s a lot less pressure starting a game than there is coming in late in the game with bases loaded and trying to protect the lead.

        To me it was the context. Starting against Peterson means Drew would need to be relatively perfect to keep the Beavs in the game, with the way Peterson had been pitching. If Drew went up against their #3, then there’s less pressure to be perfect and I’d be fine with that.

        but maybe it couldn’t be helped since Peterson was pushed to Friday.

      An Oregon Shakespeare alum. He leaves a great legacy.

      I think I’ll rewatch Frailty sometime this week.

      Well… bye.
